Locations with maximum wind occurrence increase the capacity factors drastically and thus are the better investment. If the wind turbine is operating at for example a capacity factor of 32% instead of 24% this is a huge difference. With onshore clusters of Dualtowers, we can achieve this. We harvest the wind, converted instantly to hydrogen gas using electrolyzers.
The efficiency of a high capacity factor can be gone if the transport of the energy is not efficient. There are different routes to transport hydrogen, using pipelines, liquified hydrogen, LOHC (liquid organic hydrogen carriers molecules), conversions to Methanol (but than an CO2 source needs to be available close to the wind location).
Our conclusion is that Ammonia is the most simple, most reliable and best known technology, to store hydrogen over a long period of time in an efficient way. The Ammonia synthesis is one of the oldest chemical reactions, the Haber–Bosch process. Ammonia is a base chemical produced at industrial scale, currently about 180 million tons per year.
Ammonia in a liquid state (-33°C) is easier and hugely more efficient to transport than hydrogen gas or even liquified hydrogen.
